Sugamo Shinkin Bank / Tokiwadai branch by Emmanuelle Moureaux Architecture + Design

The French-born, Japan-based architect Emmanuelle Moureaux has realised this joyful three-storey Tokiwadai branch of a Japanese Sugamo Shinkin Bank. Featuring a distinctive white façade punctured by numerous, variously-sized windows and incorporating a reoccurring theme of leaf motifs, the building aims to provide the visiting clients with ‘a natural, rejuvenating feeling.’

More about the project:

 

‘Sugamo Shinkin Bank is a credit union that strives to provide first-rate hospitality to its customers in accordance with its motto: “we take pleasure in serving happy customers.” We handled the architectural and interior design for the bank’s newly relocated branch in Tokiwadai.

‘ATMs and teller windows are located on the first floor, along with 3 courtyards and an open space laid out with chairs in 14 different colors. The second storey houses the loan section, reception rooms, offices and 4 courtyards, while the third floor is reserved for facilities for staff use, including changing rooms and a cafeteria. Thanks to the 7 light-filled courtyards planted with trees and flowering plants, each of these spaces is loosely connected to all the others.’
